Severn bridge bombing cars

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Both Severn Bridges closed due to falling ice, M4 closed
     
  2. Bump

    Is that meant to be funny :wink:
     
  4. no, so far it has bombed 7 cars with up to metre sized ice bombs which explode after falling about 200ft
     
  5. Yeah... not a safe situation. My sister's husband had his windshield shattered by a load of snow and ice coming off an overpass just a dozen feet up so I can imagine the dammage done when a larger chunk has the time to hit terminal velocity before impact (he's okay... was shaken up by the incident though.)
     


  6. Chubbster, why are you 'bumping' this (and only two minutes after the initial post)? Do you think that people who may be driving on the M4 towards the bridges are logged on to Arrse? I'm sure the radios, Highway Dept and the relevant local authorities are disseminating the information suitably without needing you to 'give them a hand'. Do us all a favour and pop across to the bridges. Stand under a rather large lump of ice and let us know when it falls? Thanks.
